Ever felt so trapped by burdens and trials that you couldn’t see a way out?

Then this song is for you!

Here are the lyrics to the song, He’ll Make a Way, by the Crabbe family:

He’ll Make a Way!

“Looking for answers, you need a way out
You’ve been trapped in that trial full of sorrow and doubt
You saw a trickle of sunlight but you found no escape
Just hold on to His promises, He said He’d make a way

Chorus
He’ll make a way in the middle of nowhere
When it seems no one really cares He is there by your side
He’ll make a way when you feel Satan close in
Don’t give up, don’t give in,
He’ll make a way right on time

Standing at the Red Sea, no place to go
Pharaoh’s army was closing in, they’d soon overthrow
But right out of nowhere came a might strong hand
He rolled back the water, He made a way out again

Chorus
He’ll make a way in the middle of nowhere
When it seems no one really cares He is there by your side
He’ll make a way when you feel Satan close in
Don’t give up, don’t give in,
He’ll make a way right on time

Here’s a Memorial Day Poem that is sure to uplift and inspire:

The Best on Earth:

A Veteran’s Day Tribute

If someone has done military service,
They earn the title “veteran,” and more;
They earn our deep respect and admiration;
That they are special no one can ignore.

They sacrificed the comforts we enjoy;
The list is long of all the things they gave.
Our veterans are extraordinary people;
They’re loyal, dedicated, true and brave.

When terror and invasion were real threats,
They showed us they could handle any storm.
We owe our freedoms and our very lives
To our veterans, who served in uniform.

Our veterans should be celebrities;
They’re exceptional; no other group compares.
We’re grateful for the many things they’ve done;
They’re always in our hearts and in our prayers.

We owe our veterans support and friendship;
Let no one ever question what they’re worth.
These men and women served us and our country,
Our veterans–the very best on earth.

Photo Tips: Scripture Pictures

Interested in photo tips from an award-winning photographer?

The Scripture Pictures Team did a series of interviews with Henry Lehn, photographer for the Scripture Pictures site.

He offers photo tips for all photographers – from beginners to the most advanced.

Photo Tip #5: More on Utilizing Leading lines 

Use leading lines, also known as converging lines, to attract the viewer’s focus into your image.

In landscape photography, examples of leading lines include roads, paths, and fences.

Anything that creates a line that leads a viewer’s attention into the photo can be used.

Henry says, “The Scriptures Picture photo of Matthew 11:28 is a great example of the use of leading lines. The natural grooves in the rock formation lead the viewer’s focus right to the woman who’s sitting at the edge of the canyon.”

For a larger view, please click on the Scriptures Picture photo of Matthew 11:28 called: God Will Give You Rest!

Come to me, all of you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

This Scriptures Picture photo was taken in an area called the “Wave” near the border of Utah and Arizona. It is a great gift for anyone who wants a powerful, visual testimony that captures both God’s sovereignty and peace all in the same image.

In His Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scriptures Picture Team

Blood of Jesus: Scripture Pictures

Scripture-Pictures-96Blood of Jesus: Scripture Pictures

Only the Blood of Jesus

Only the blood of Jesus,
Only His nail scarred hand,
Can wash a soul white as snow…
Creating a brand new man.

Only the blood of Jesus,
The Lamb of God from above,
Can remove all sin and stain…
Oh, what mercy, grace and love!

Only the blood of Jesus,
Can reach the deep sins concealed,
Touching each and every spot…
It’s by His stripes we’re healed.

Only the blood of Jesus,
Applied to a contrite heart,
Can change a soul’s destiny…
And eternal life impart.

Praise God for that precious blood,
Flowing from heaven to earth,
A stream of cleansing power…
That redeems and gives new birth.

Third Day: Scripture Pictures

scripture-pictures-98Third Day: Scripture Pictures

Jesus died a criminal’s death on a cross for our sins. His was crucified between two thieves.

One of the thieves mocked Jesus and told him that if He were truly the messiah, then He should get down from the cross and save Himself.

But the other thief accepted Jesus as His savior, as they both lay dying on the cross. Jesus told this thief, “Today, you will be with Me in Paradise.”

The Christian group, Third Day wrote a song about this experience called, Thief. 

The Scripture Pictures Team have attached a link to the music video and have posted the lyrics below.

Patti of the Scripture Pictures Team says: “Third Day’s song, Thief, is one of the most powerful of songs I have ever heard about the crucifixion of Christ. It tells the Easter account in a poignant way from the eyes of the thief who turned his life over to Jesus while they were both being crucified.”

Please take a few minutes and listen to this song.

The Scripture Pictures Team believes this song, Thief, by Third Day, will give you a deeper understanding of Calvary.

 “Thief”

I am a thief, I am a murderer
Walking up this lonely hill
What have I done? I don’t remember
No one knows just how I feel
and I know that my time is coming soon.
It’s been so long. Oh, such a long time
Since I’ve lived with peace and rest
Now I am here, my destination
guess things work for the best
and I know that my time is coming soon
Who is this man? This man beside me
They call the King of the Jews
They don’t believe that He’s the Messiah
But, somehow I know it’s true.
And they laugh at Him in mockery,
and beat Him till he bleeds
They nail Him to the rugged cross,
and raise Him, they raise Him up next to me
My time has come, I’m slowly fading
I deserve what I receive
Jesus when You are in Your kingdom
Could You please remember me
and He looks at me still holding on
the tears fall from His eyes
He says I tell the truth
Today, you will live with Me in paradise
and I know that my time is coming soon
and I know paradise is coming soon.

Thief was written by Johnny Mac Powell, Samuel Tai Anderson, Bradley B.C. Avery, David Carr, and Mark D. Lee

 Please click on the Scripture Pictures photo called:

Jesus took the nails for us.

Colossians 2:13-14: And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

This photo of Henry holding a huge nail is a poignant tribute to the ultimate sacrifice by Jesus Christ of His crucifixion and death on the cross so that we might live forever with Him. The Easter miracle culminates in Jesus’ glorious resurrection on the third day. This photo is not just for Easter – His saving grace applies every day in our lives.

Christian Recovery: Scripture Pictures

Millions of Christians who struggle with addictions live an Easter-like experience, as they choose to “die” to their addictions, one day at a time, and allow Christ to “resurrect” them through Christ-centered sobriety and recovery.

While some Christians have been instantly delivered from the bondage of substance abuse, many others work on being clean and sober “just for today”, step-by-step, one moment at a time.

The entire Scripture Pictures Team hope that the photos in our Addiction section will inspire you and your loved ones to seek recovery through the restoration power of Jesus Christ. Here is one photo from this section called:

Jesus Sets Us Free; Free Indeed!

Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Therefore, if the son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:32 & 36

This photo offers visual affirmation of God’s magnificence and His power to set us free from addiction. Only God can turn our tragedies into testimonies.

In His Love,

Patti, Henry and the Scripture Pictures Team
